I have just found out from Dr Claudine Roura that this mask can be used for facial slimming too!
This is a brief description of the product's properties:
Face Slimming, Deep Moisturization, Antiaging Care : eCO2GEL If you have ever tried our eCO2GEL packing agent, you must have been amazed by its skin texture refining, whitening, brightening, and lift-up effects. Our newest technology aims to strengthen the superior performance of eCO2GEL with deep moisturization and face slimming effects Deep Moisturization As it is well known, a typical skin care regimen includes the basic step of supplying water and retaining moisture in the skin. Supplying moisture to skin is absolutely essential. In addition, retaining the moisture in the stratum corneum is indispensable, especially in dry seasons like autumn and winter in Japan or for people who tend to have dry skin conditions. Our eCO2GEL.EX incorporates oil, which plays the function of retaining the excellent skin moisture and oil balance after CO2 packing. Furthermore, when skin is dry or skin metabolism is slowed, aging signs such as wrinkles, rough skin etc. appear. On top of our eCO2GEL technology, eCO2GEL.EX technology delivers and supplies essential oil to skin effectively, and helps retain the healthy conditions of skin after CO2 packing. Therefore, it prevents aging sign formation. Face Slimming Effect One of the main components of skin is phospholipid, which forms bi-layers. When skin is treated with eCO2GEL.EX, polyalcohols in the gel base is expected to enter the phospholipid bi-layer by CO2 DDS, and the bi-layer structure may become more organized and compacted. Therefore a face slimming effect can be observed. In the case of eCO2GEL.EX, both polyalcohols and oils in the gel base is expected to enter the phospholipid bi-layer, an even more organized and compacted structure is formed. Therefore, a stronger face slimming effect is expected. This is a true and fast slimming method without going through the painful process of weight loss.
How interesting! I must find out more about this, particularly the protocol. Watch this space!
